Superintendent addressing Common Core
Livonia, N.Y.- The Livonia Superintendent is addressing concerns over the Common Core in a written statement.
Superintendent Matthew Cole, wrote a statement titled "Common Core - Moving Forward Isn't Easy!"
"The Common Core standards are more rigorous than the previous state standards," Cole writes. "The assessments designed to measure student progress on these standards are comprised of questions that are more challenging because the standards are more challenging in order to ensure that students are prepared for college, careers, and life."
He adds, "Yes, change is stressful. So is dropping out of high school. So is not being able to get a good job. So is not getting into college or having to pay for extra 'remedial' courses in college. We need to come together to focus our energies and resources on helping all students get better. Moving forward isn't easy - that's the truth."
